BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The Deputy Foreign Minister of Venezuela, Ivan Gil, stated on Thursday that his nation does not rule out the arrival of more Russian military personnel.

According to Gil, the Venezuelan government has not ruled out the deployment of more Russian military personnel as part of an agreement with Moscow.

“The group of military specialists is (in Venezuela) in the context of our agreements and contracts for military-technical cooperation,” Interfax quoted Gil as saying.

Gil also said Russian forces will stay in Venezuela as long as needed, and that there is no set period for their stay.

A number of Russian military personnel arrived in Venezuela last month after the U.S. armed forces deployed a number of troops at the Colombian-Venezuelan border in early March.

While some reports alleged that Chinese People’s Liberation Army deployed to Venezuela, China’s spokespérson for the Foreign Ministry denied these claims, calling them “simply untrue”.
